"Txia'-Sast. and the West."5
In lookingWvor the page of tbeN. C. Journal
tf E lu at-on, f tir vyor- im t with an article, under
;? s.l.ovi cnptimi. It i.- well written and contains
a great deiil of truth'.' The writer alludes to the
Taut of a . oli-.liiUii'ty .f f eeling on tlie part of North
Caroiij.inii.- living hi the Eastern and Western
sections of the State, and howd pretty conclusively
that this division which exit among u, is a bane
to our prosperity, retards ottr progress and builds
Up Markets in Virginia and South Carolina, while
ur own town-! and cities arc left to droop and die.
uch is no doubt a true picture of the present po
sition of our State. When will North Carolina
learu that lesson of wisdom which is so important
to he r welfare, to have an eye towards her own
markets .' Y hen win nc learn mat uy granting
her aid to Itail-Iioads and other works, which con
vey her trade to other markets, hhe is only put
ting the knife to her own throat ? Perhaps for a
little while these works may appear to operate to
her advantage ; hut us sure as the constant bleed-
ing at both arms of the physical body will bring to
it death, so surely will the bk-eding pore of the
State, North and South, produce the slumbers of
death to her own prosperity, and will, most pro
bably make her entirely dependent Upon other
novereip-ntics. nna terli.iis ne ieii. io imu
and caprices, leav ing her only to act in the capaci
ty of a hewer of Wood, and a drawer of Water.
We cannot look on her present tendency towards
this condition without misgivings as to what will be I
Aher fate. JIow it saddens our heart to coniempiu.
the dread 1 of - ereign State, from
whose midst ascended the first shout for American
liberty ami which at one time was the 4th in the
Confederacy, that she will allow others to take
away her treasure, tear off her crown, and lay her
honor in the dust ! Surely this cannot be the fate
of the land of our birth. It cannot bo that in fu
ture, it shaii be said, that eur own dear mother,
North Carolina, is left :
"A pile of mouldering ruins!"
Reader! citizens of our beloved State! Native
born soils of her soil! (Jan you look on the picture
here drawn of her downward career without shed
ding for her the tear of sympathy and affection?
Aye. is it not too true that she is going downward
and downward without the hope of redemption!

Various railroads hnve
been project ed, some completed, but these have
failed in wipe out this line of 'difference between
the Kast and West. The bible of the members
of the human body strikingly -illustrates the sad
effi-.ts of a want of unit v.-among the different
snenibers, and clearly proves that without unity
of feel i iur and unity of interest whether in the"
human body or the body politic, there can be
no prosperity: We might naturally look to the
power and influence of the Pres-s to harmon
ize and unite the discordant, members , of .. our
.State; but we arc sorry to ee these powerful
engines -for "good: or for evil, too often lending
their a .1 to prejudice stil I more the people of
the East and' the West against each other.
While every one must see that, this iion-cotn-mnnity
of feeling between the different members
of our .State has kept one vein of her life blood
constantly." flowing into Virginia, and another
into .South Carolina.
Our K i stem legislators are often more ready
to vote for win ks of improveuient that will tend
to injure the West, than for those calculated
to benefit her; while our Western legislators
arc too rc-adv to leud their aid to works that
tend to impoverish the East. If our Western
friends can bu Id a railroad that will in some
degree oenelit themselves enable them to run
their productions to the ports of South Caro
lina and Virginia, you find them eager tc en
gage in the enterprise; although at the same
time they are we'd aware that there is. an abun
dance i'd" vessels in our" Eastern ports rotting
for the want of 'employment and that their
Eastern neighbors will be compelled to send
"North" -.fortho.se very articles which they are
runniii"- off through the ports of other States.
And if our Eastern friends can construct any
work that will enable them the more easily to
import Northern hay, flour, onions, cabbage,
butter, &c, and which work will at the same
tiuie prevent their Western neighbors from find
ing a home market for these very articles of -a
superior kind and that too of their own pro
duction, you find t hem singing a jubilee over
their so called triumph. "

the extravagance of this, as well as of the pre

Mr Pugh, of Ohio, opposed the bill, regard
ing it as a strange proposition to come from

Legislature had passed " an act repealing

a census, and election for delegates , to-a
Convention," over the veto ot Governor
Stanton. -., . .
In Ihe House the vote stood 29 to 1 ; in
the Senate the vote for it was unanimous. .
A rumor that both Messrs. Walker and
Stanton have been removed by the Presi
dent, was received from Lexington on the
17th, and had been generally accredited at
Lecompton through the day." It has caused
little excitement, almost every one saying,
" Just as 1 expected."
